  • 12 packs of assorted flavored Kool-Aid
  • 24 paper cups
  • 6 quarts warm or hot water
  • 6 cups sugar


  • Combine Kool-Aid powder and sugar in a large bowl.
  • Pour in warm/hot water and stir until sugar completely dissolves.
  • Let it cool to room temperature for 5-10 minutes.
  • Place paper cups on a flat tray for stability.
  • Pour the Kool-Aid mixture into cups, filling them about three-quarters full.
  • Cover each cup with foil/plastic wrap, and insert a popsicle stick through it into the liquid.
  • Freeze for at least 4 hours until solid.
  • Remove foil/wrap and gently tear away the paper cup to reveal your Lilly Dilly Freeze Cup. Serve immediately or store in an airtight container in the freezer for later enjoyment.


  • For a slushier texture, try using a 2-to-1 ratio of Kool-Aid to water.
  • Experiment with different types of sweeteners, such as honey or agave nectar, for a healthier alternative.
  • Get creative with your flavors and toppings – try adding in fresh fruit chunks or herbs like mint leaves for an extra burst of flavor.
  • Don’t have paper cups? You can also use popsicle molds or even ice cube trays for smaller, bite-sized Lilly Dilly Freeze Cups.
